My Husband was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2010 age 50 on a regular check up last November a tumour was found on his left lung and he subsequently had a lobectomy of his upper left lung. He was off work for 3 months and returned part time but is now finding this so hard, just done his first week full time but so exhausted and so frustrated he cannot do all the things he used to and may have to give his job up, but doesn't want to. Also told by the Respiratory nurse this week that he qualifies for oxygen which was a shock. He is on steroids but still has a persistent cough cant seem to shake this off, thank goodness we have a wonderful Consultant and Lung Cancer Nurse who he sees every six weeks. All he wants to do is go on holiday abroad but not sure he can fly. Feels like we are living a nightmare.
